Glassdoor selects Nestle Purina as one of the Best Places to Work
ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI — Nestle Purina PetCare Company has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2018. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 10th year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor.
Nestle Purina is a global leader in pet care, with a 90-year history of making some of the most popular and trusted dog and cat food and litter brands, such as Purina ONE, Dog Chow, Friskies, Tidy Cats and Pro Plan. Nestle Purina employs more than 8,000 associates across the U.S. between its Headquarters in St. Louis and 20 manufacturing facilities across the country.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as a best place to work by Glassdoor for the fifth consecutive year,” said Steve Degnan, Chief Human Resources officer, Nestle Purina. “Our passionate associates make the culture at Purina, where we work every day to enrich the lives of pets and the people who love them.”
“We know today’s job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more. To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognize employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best – the employees,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder. “Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage. We’re proud to celebrate the 2018 winners as we mark our tenth anniversary of the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between Nov. 1, 2016 and Oct. 22, 2017. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
